Bailey Unicorn Barcelona in detail
Sticking with the same profile as the other two Baileys, the new Bailey Unicorn shares the same body design and construction. However what Bailey has done first to the exterior is smartened it up. The gas locker lid has become the same colour as the rest of the van and the side windows have now been stretched. New smart graphics have at least taken away the box profile that typifies Pegasus and Olympus models.
The front corner mouldings have been altered on production models and made larger while the stone chip problems have been solved with thick plastic – this however does look a little out of place and a few years of fade may have a detrimental effect on its cosmetics. The rear end panel is the same – a shame because Bailey had a chance here to smarten it up and missed out.
The Barcelona is the twin-axle fixed bed end washroom layout based on the Bailey Pegasus 624. A layout that will prove a major seller in the Bailey Unicorn range. Now be prepared for a shock, because as you step into the Unicorn the interior is instantly likeable. Yes it’s very impressive and even though the white walls are still in evidence, the new walnut furniture finish balances this. The feel of the Unicorn is clubman like and you can see where the extra cash over the Pegasus has been put to good use.
The layout comes with a super front lounge. The large front shelf stays while deep roof locker storage really is very good. We like the new flush corner lights too but Bailey have omitted mains operation on these. The lounge has LED strip lights plus corner spots, so this is much improved on the Pegasus too. Seating is excellent with loads of support and feels of a good quality, again something carried on through from the Pegasus and Bailey Olympus ranges.
